Beet Pickled Eggs


There are some meals that you will always love and think of your childhood as you enjoy them – mac n cheese, Oreos, square pizza . . .  pickled eggs. All those foods that are bad for you and you can’t eat on a regular basis.  Unless you have a very high metabolism.

There are also foods that people just won’t understand why you like them. This is me and pickled eggs. I understand. I get it. Pickled eggs . . . They sound gross if you’ve never had them. Plus, they’re pink eggs. Eggs aren’t supposed to be pink. I’ve had friends asked me to send pictures because they’re so confused as to what a pickled egg could be. They’re response? “Girl, eggs aren’t supposed to be pink. But they are beautiful and delicious. I promise.




But ever since I can remember, my mother has made Pickled Eggs in the Spring time. It’s just expected that she will make a dozen for me and a dozen for my brother. I have fond memories of sitting at the table with a piece of salty ham and several pickled eggs on my plate laughing at my brother’s jokes. Pink eggs – they’re good! Give them a try.
